City of Miami to Vote on Domestic Partnership Ordinance

Thursday is an important day for domestic partners -- gay and straight -- in the city of Miami. Commissioners will vote on an ordinance that gives employment benefits to long-term couples. The big issue: right to health insurance for city employees.

Advocates at Save Dade ask that folks who support the bill arrive at Miami City Hall - Commission Chambers, 3500 Pan American Dr., Coconut Grove, at 9:30 a.m. Thursday.

A message from Save: "Your presence is important because it will provide the commissioners with the assurance that our community believes in employment benefits -- including health care... There is no definite time in which the ordinance will be heard, but it will be early on the agenda, so plan on arriving at 9:30 to be sure not to miss it."
